Professional Writing, Editing and Publishing is an interdisciplinary major designed to prepare students for a wide variety of careers in the writing and publishing field. Students graduating with a degree in Professional Writing, Editing, and Publishing from NVU will do so with skills critical to the publishing profession: writing in many genres including grounding in journalism and literary nonfiction, graphic design, the art of literary editing, technical skills needed to format manuscripts for commercial presses and an understanding of the literary marketplace. Courses in the core of this program cross disciplinary lines, incorporating the tangible benefits of both liberal arts and career training. For all students in the program,  a capstone course will develop a book from initial manuscript submission and acceptance through to the editing and design phases, culminating with actual publication and distribution through a new imprint, Northern Vermont University Press.
